Importance of information technology in today world
Information technology (IT) plays a vital role in commerce and business which helps the different
organizations for proficiently working in order to elevate the output. Advancement in Information
technology minimize the require time for working in business field. Electronic storage, protection of records
and faster communication are benefits of IT which can utilized in our creativity. On one hand, IT needs the
demands of the nova competitive business environment and sound changes in computers nature in the
other. Information Technology systems meets with many competitive advanced devices which provides
valuable information to managers for making the necessary and crucial steps in respective of their
operational organization. IT needs the computer applications for conducting the work of every field.
As computer systems are globally used, so it will be useful to link the IT into different organizations. IT
keeps the important records of companies. To store the patient and customer files is important to keep the
veracity of business. Methodologies (programming/coding) processes, data conversion, data
communications retrieval and storage, design and system analysis aided to collect present information. It is
also helpful in educational departments and professions. With the introduction of computers, the business
world was changed and by using computers and software, Businesses used the IT and various software
through computer to run their working in proper way. Companies keep the information stored by using the
virtual vaults (storage system) and allow the certain users to change or add, to access or withdraw the
important documents. World of business needs the strong communication system and IT gives the company
to communicate the rapidly and effectively.
Internet and computers can be used to increase the quality of education both in informal and formal way.
IT helps the students in learning process effectively. It is used in pedagogical methods as it contributed to
improve school innovation, community services and teaching practices. To general consideration, students
by using the modern technology are effectively working on learning process and consider their
responsibilities to greater extent. As IT restricts the teacher working regarding coaching students and
advising and just focus on transmitting the knowledge and lectures. Information technology is completely
working in almost all fields such as learning, work, health and leisure. IT is the best way to process the
information and students must need to access the computer and internet for increasing their skills. Schools
are source of knowledge and information. So, from ministries to classroom the use of IT is best way in
educational institutes for enhancing and holding the proficiency skills to compete with modern technology
for both teachers and students. Information technology enhanced the learning process via computer and
assignment which becomes more meaningful and productive for teachers to get expected outcomes from
students. IT maintains the matters between users and producers students which boost the efficiency and
capacity of teacher to rely exclusively live communication contact between students and teachers via chalk
session, e-mail web-based learning such as intranet, internet, TV audio-videotape, CD-ROM and extranet.
Graphics, Animation and PowerPoint are also helpful for learning contents. Complicated process can
explained well by computer. It is necessary for problem solving, decision making skills and teaching
process. Besides, other learning process such as Integrated Learning Modules, blogging, M-learning, e-
learning, U-learning, Enhancement of Browsers and Wikis are taken as initiated steps to improve the beast
learning way.In1960s, Informatics training programs and specialized university departments have started
in Germany, Belgium Netherlands and France for development of research, high-quality health informatics
and education. Within advancement of IT, the research in medical filed is significantly increased as medical
students are rapidly access to computers and internet for retrieving the important information by using
personal digital assistants (PDA) and palmtops. Reducing the errors in medical field is considered as first
priority globally. For hospitalized patients, the source of injuries are drug events. So, to stabilize patient
health different technological systems are used such as computerized physician order entry (CPOE).
Physicians used this system to write the record online and used to check the either record entry is authentic
or not. This system is also used to check patient history and to know about their prescribed dose. Information
technology is widely used for strengthening and improving spontaneous and better practices in agriculture
such as to eliminate the agricultural hazardous and increase yield. Satellite are directly connected with
agricultural remote sensing as to know about Smog, Ozone layer Depletion and Monsoon. Drone
technology is used in agriculture field for land survey, using pesticides, mass data collection, using
fertilizers, seeds planting and water irrigation.
So, from above discussion it is clearly seen that this 21th century cannot run without use of computer and
internet. Information Technology is being used in every field of life. No field is complete without use of
IT. No source of information is considered valid without references and citations which is possible through
internet. In business departments, in educational institutes, in agricultural fields and in medical education
no productivity and outcomes can attained without use of internet and technological system.
